I agree with you--they do not make a compelling argument for additional restriction by any stretch--but that's just not the political reality.
I know it's not political reality. Part of our disconnect here might be that I'm talking about what SHOULD BE not what IS.
i.e.- Should there be training requirements? No.
Will there eventually be enough pressure that there will be requirements? Probably Yes.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
